I'm not a fan of the quality or I should say lack of in the LRS after my last endeavor with them a few years back. I have the HD WS on my '12 and the quality on it seems to be good.

I can’t speak to the LRS, but I had a wind splitter, and did not care for it because the distortions at the curves. I found it distracting, if it wasn’t for the distortions I would have liked it. FWIW

My 16 had a LRS on it and I loved it, the quality was great, my 20 has a LRS on it and although the design is great and does exactly what it did on my 16 the quality is subpar.  I had it on for probably 1500 miles or so and was on a trip and noticed spiderwebbing around the bolts that hold it in.  I have taken windshields off dozens of times and never had an issue with over tightening so Im thinking its the quality.

I had the wind splitter on my 2012 CVO StreetGlide and after the factory wind screen cracked from wind blast from behind me on my current 20I5 Limited I asked to warranty it towards the Windsplitter and the dealer did without charge.
I am happy with the Windsplitter and how it works.
I have never used a different brand so my response is 1 sided,, but it does push the wind away from me, better than OE on both bikes well actually 3 bikes do to putting the Windsplitter from the 12 to the 13 limited for a couple years.

Try looking at Freedom shields. Great people and you can try it out and if you're not happy return it for your money back.

Freedom Shields has great products and service. As long as you test it with the film on the shield you can return it if needed. They are a little thicker and I think that is a good thing.

Had a LRS on my 2008 and 2014. Bought a 2016 which had a Wind Splitter on it. Didn't like to distortion. It know has a LRS. Very happy. Have not noticed any quality difference.
